"A 'Klingon' Christmas Carol"? Who is playing Ebenezer Scrooge? Charles Dickens never envisioned his literary works going to far reaches of the universe. I wonder if the dastardly Romulans or 'Q' have their own "A Christmas Carol" presentation in their repertory?

This looks like like a fun event. I wonder if it is going to be performed on a holodeck? Now that would be a trek would no one has gone before!

This is the original Klingon version that Dickens adapted. Ebenezer Scrooge was Dicken's version of the cowardly SQuja' that Michael Ooms (who's father portrayed Scrooge for the Guthrie for years) is playing.

Charles Dickens adapted his "Christmas Carol" from the Klingon? Wow, isn't that a time warp paradox?
This literature major wants to know. This is interesting and very enlightening to know. Maybe I given the Klingons too much of a bad rap all these years.

No time warp, as the Klingon version was written before Dickens was born, how he got it is a mystery. I suspect the same vendor that got the original Klingon plays into W. Shakespeare's hands. But you need to come and see to find out what Mr. Dickens cut out so as not to offend the fragile psyches of Terrans.
